's happening now reminds him of katrina. gary, tell me why you believe that. >> reporter: piers, this is a city of 50,000 people right across the hudson river in new york city. yes, it does remind me of katrina because behind us we have 50% of hoboken flooded and there are, according to the mayor, thousands of people in their apartments and homes who can't get out right now. so we actually went on a front loader with the mayor, they're using front loaders to rescue people. they're trying to prioritize the rescues. what's different about this than new orleans, what we saw in katrina in 2005 when we went down streets in boats, is that there are no casualties. that's the good news. but they're still not 100% sure. people can't leave their homes, not only because the water's deep but because there's live power lines in the water. so as we're going down the street in this front-loader we see people waving from their windows, children, men, women. and most of them seem to have smiles on their faces because they've seen the water recede. in new orleans the water kept getting higher. this water is rece
katrina. this from james. fitting it tacks an act of god to finally spotlight romney's weaknesses. thank you for your responses and joining me today. "cnn newsroom" continues right now with ashleigh banfield. >> thank you so much. it's 11:00 on the east coast. 8:00 a.m. on the west coast. recovery is a word you are going to be hearing a lot of in the next few days. the word normalcy, not so much. in the wake of superstorm sandy, normal life is a far off dream for so many millions in the northeast corridor and points west. worst of all, a still growing toll of lives lost. at least 40 in the u.s. one so far in canada. more than 6 million homes and businesses still don't have electricity but that is a big improvement from yesterday. and while floods and surges with some exceptions have gone down, that just makes the devastation all the more apparent. you are looking at point pleasant beach halfway between new york and atlantic city on the new jersey shore. president obama visiting these scenes this afternoon. the final day in full-on disaster mode before he gets back to the campaign tomorro
and says stay away from here. i have got problems. i hope people this is what should have said with katrina. they have used the ploy and bush. hey i was told not to come in there that they didn't need the gridlock. this proves it. if you think. >> bill: let me set it up, that bloomberg told president obama and dennis miller not to come to new york. miller defied him but the president did not because the president is doing lump lomb lombado. >> in a heavily populated metropolitan area. they both start with new, new orleans or new york. the one mayor was hiding out in the penthouse trying to stay soft. >> bill: you couldn't freeze traffic zones because traffic isn't moving. >> i was 10 blocks away, billy. i gave up after 40 minutes and just walked over. >> bill: you can't go anywhere because the subways are out. >> just remember that folks when they tell you they were heartless and bush was heartless. they don't want the president in major area. good for bloomberg for saying it. >> bill: do you think that the hurricane is going to have any influence on the presidential vote next week? >> no.
it before. went through the tornados, 9/11, katrina, the weather stories of the past two years have been incredible. i think you will see again in the aftermauth of the storm, so often the worst of mother nature tend to bring out the best in humanity and think we will see >>> this morning on "world news now" -- after the perfect storm. >> with a mixture of determination and disbelief, millions of people reeling from hurricane sandy are taking th i very long recovery. realizing what has been lost and changed forever. >> we will rebuild it. no questionen my mind. we will rebuild it. but for those of us who are my age it went beep the same. >> the numbers are staggering. but they only begin to tell the story. at lea 50 dead, more than 8 million without power, tens of billions of dollars in damage. and the resilient people of new york city are once again forced to find a way to cope. >> and we saw the river coming toward us. and it, it actually looked like -- something out of a -- a movie. it was -- it was unbelievable. >> later today, president obama will visit parts of new jersey that bore
in hurricane katrina. the amount of exaggeration going on to demonize president bush is beyond the pale. it's not even happening here because media is more interested to stress bipartisan than that. to me would never have happened if mccain was president. >> andrea: there was a difference -- look at the response to hurricane katrina. president bush demonized, wasn't doing enough. >> bob: because fema was a joke of an agency then. horse trader was running it. now everybody who has dealt with fema in this storm gave them praise. >> eric: i love you like a brother but the people who are, you know, there is a makeshift morgue in a school in staten island. there are people who are without power. you saw the people without food, power. fema is not doing their job. there are people struggling and suffering. >> bob: how many people do you think fema has? >> eric: i don't know. bring people in. >> bob: bring some people in. you think they couldn't bring neem, they wouldn't bring neem? they'd let staten island sink? >> eric: apparently that have. >> bob: that is ridiculous. >> andrea: this is also be
comparisons to katrina, there's a reason for it. things are starting to look and feel like a deep, long-haul disaster. the grisly business of finding bodies, the daily realization that the face of the earth has changed, especially along the jersey shore. this is the new contour of the jersey shore. and right where we are is the borderline between two towns which have been in the news, bayhead to the north. six miles down is seaside heights, new jersey, almost impossible to see what's left of the ferris wheel and the amusement tower. from seaside heights, new jersey, this is what we found on the beach, one of the 57 chevy replicas that was part of the ride. the ocean gave this quite a ride. but just pause and think about the number of 4 and 5-year-olds who got their first thrill on a carnival ride at the beach right in this front seat with the safety bar down to protect them. there are two kinds of damage along the jersey shore. these are the first pictures taken from beach level of some of the fanciest sections. one of these houses was valued at $13 million the day before the storm arri
government has stepped in to help. this is the third hurricane i've covered in my lifetime, andrew, katrina and now this. we are at the point where the population gets furious and they turn on the government. the government can just not handle the huge, huge logistical requirements that happen after a storm like this. could this actually turn on the president at some point here? >> reporter: i don't think so. i think what the president has had the opportunity to do is show americans that he was involved in an effort that the country was rallying behind and do his job in a way that got praise by the keynote speaker at the republican convention, chris christie, very tough critic of the president otherwise. so i don't think many voters are going to blame president obama for what's going on right now, and leave aside the fact that the states in which the difficulties are occurring db new york, new jersey, connecticut are all reliantly democratic states. what is much more important to the outcome of this election, michelle, is what's going on behind me at this afl-cio phone bank where union volu
this before. multiple times, hurricane katrina, hugo, et cetera, et cetera. the snow-ma geddon to hit the east coast, each time people thought this is it. they spike for a little bit. 24, 48 hours and then come back to where they were before. >> brenda: jonas? do you have any concerns about this? hurricane isaac when it hit, caused the biggest jump in gas prices in 18 months. >> and in this case, no, in connecticut i couldn't drive because tre were trees down and your mobility goes dn to the point where fuel consumption wi dro as much as refining capacity unless it freakingly hits the refinery because you can't get to work, major power outages, no power for a week and you're not consuming energy when you can't turn on the power and can't get to work in your car. so it's a good thing, but keep the gas price froms going bananas in the first place. >> brenda: the east coast provides 6 1/2% of the gas that the u.s. uses. that's kinds of a-- could be a hit. >> i don't thinkt's going to be a very big hit. look, the prices may well go up, even if just one light bulb at one refinery gets knocked out b

's predecessor george w. bush was harshly criticized for his slow response to hurricane katrina. the storm devastated the south of the united states including the city of new orleans. republican campaign evented eeds in the s of virginia on sunday. both campaigns are concerned about the negative impact of early voting. ballots cast ahead of the election account for 30% of the total. we now go to sayaka mori who's been following this storm for us. >> yes, catherine. sandy is quite a massive storm. clouds are blanketing eastern portions of the u.s. into eastern canada. we have lots of reports of flooding as well as strong winds. now things will get even worse because the center of sandy is expected to move into the new jersey coast within the next couple of hours. storm surge is going to be a major concern that's going to be accompanied by high tide. that means water levels will get much higher than usual. coastal flooding is highly likely. that's why hundreds of thousands of people have been ordered to evacuate. it looks like it's going to move through pennsylvania, new york city and aimin

of gasoline as opposed to the producer, and some other hurricanes like katrina and irene before, they've hit an area that has been a big producer of oil, whereas really, in the northeast, they are the consumers of all of that gasoline, and so demand has dropped, but the supply hasn't really dropped as much. > > so the demand is dropping, especially as people are stuck home and not going to offices for instance. > > right. flights are canceled, and people are not driving around as you said, so the demand there has dropped, and that, interestingly enough, has pushed some prices in the southeast region down even further because that oil that usually would have gone to the northeast has dropped off a little bit. > > so much of this boils down to what's going on with the refineries. so what do you anticipate there? you know, we think that this is going to be just a temporary shutdown in the northeast region, and that, as i said earlier, we are going to continue to see prices continue to drop, and demand will come back up after the hurricane is through. > > quick predictions now: where do you see
katrina devastated new orleans, it seems all the relevant agencies were ready this time, up to speed, especially fema, the federal emergency management agency, that was criticized in 2005 being widely lauded now. the president himself was up all night from monday to tuesday in the situation room in the white house monitoring the situation. now he is touring the disaster areas, especially in new jersey, so he seemed very much concerned and seemed to do everything he could to help the people. he has been applauded even by republican competitors for this. one of his harshest critics has always been new jersey governor chris christie, and this man said that obama was doing an outstanding job. >> elections are right around the corner next week, and campaigns have resumed. it is a difficult question to ask, but who has actually profited from the situation? >> for mitt romney, it is a difficult situation because national disaster times are times when politics are supposed to be put aside, so campaigning too early might hurt him, but it is the only thing he can do because he does not have an
